I’d like to give ” Tailor Made Physical Therapy ” a huge shout out. They are Awesome !!! I certainly would recommend their services to anyone. I had the pleasure of having Matt as my therapist, He is very dedicated to working on your issue or injury and to get you back to feeling better or healed. I had a wonderful experience and would go there again.
I really like the changes I see in the March 17th edition. There are great photos of people contributing to the community and articles that matter, such as the one concerning rising fuel prices. Keep up the good work!
Thanks to the Troy Lions Club for the Christmas decorations they put up in the Park! Great community spirit.
THUMBS UP to the City of Troy Elected Officials for the purchase of 110 E. Market Street to make way for a public parking lot serving the downtown area. This has been something that the city has needed for quite a while. Would love to see more mom-and-pop shops and/or restaurants in the downtown area.
